Nevada Barr, whose name is not a pseudonym (she was named for her state of origin, in 1952--talk about trend-setting parents!), is a mystery novelist best known for her Anna Pigeon mysteries.

Why don't they just start naming children Massachusetts or Colorado?

Place names are tacky, I'm afraid, and people will always associate the name with the state, and it's not necessarily good. The name doesn't sound very classy or pretty, and the child might end up disliking the state.

My daughter's name is "Neveda". It is pronounced like the state "Nevada". But I can't seem to find many if any alike.

It is so tacky to name your kid after a state.

It reminds me of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It's probably that impression that makes me like the name. With me being European the Nevada state association I don't mind it.

There's nothing wrong with Nevada, or the lovely mountain range, but I don't like state names at all for a child! Victoria and Adelaide are place names I like, but they're exceptions. I don't see anything particularly charming about the name itself, either. It doesn't even have a nice sound!

Victoria and Adelaide were girl's names long before they were places. Those places were both named after queens called Victoria and Adelaide! Nevada is purely a place name, which some parents have picked as a name for their daughter because of the "a" ending.

Nevada sounds tacky as a name. Most state names do not work well on real people. Still, at least it's not as bad as Montana.

Nevada, as a noun means "snowfall".

Nevada, as an adjective, means "snow-capped".

Also, correct Spanish pronunciation (dunno about English) is ne-VAH-dah ("e" pronounced like in "get" and "a" pronounced like in "that").

To the people suggesting that this is "purely a place name", it actually has a favorable meaning in Spanish. Also someone said Massachusetts and Colorado. I think Colorado sounds very nice and I believe Nevada is a nice name as well.

I know a girl whose middle name is Nevada pronounced Neh-VAY-duh, which was a family name, even though that's not the correct/traditional pronunciation, I like it.

Doesn't sound too bad, but the girl will probably be teased at school.
